Mason Products You are a new financial analyst with Mason Products. You will be evaluating two potential investments, both with five-year expected lives and identical initial outlays of$110,000. The required rate of return on both projects is 12 percent. The expected free cash flows from each project are as follows: Project A Project B Initial Outlay -$110,000 -$110,000 Year 1 20,000 40,000 Year 2 30,000 40,000 Year 3 40,000 40,000 Year 4 50,000 40,000 Year 5 70,000 40,000 In evaluating these projects, please respond to the following questions: 1. Why is the capital-budgeting process so important? 2. Why is it difficult to find exceptionally profitable projects? To be "exceptionally" profitable, would indicate that the profit potential is clear, obvious, and certain. And as such, you may be sure that millions like you will see it. And as many of them have the investment capital to jump in, you are left behind. Or, even if you have capital, too, the volume of people trying to start the project decreases the profits. Which is why there are so few "exceptional" profits.Try for a "good", or even a "modest" profit.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
